Guide To Fit

Fitting a firm full suit turtle neck can be challenge for some so we have provided this general guide. It is important you understand this is a guide only and that at all times you should be gentle when fitting any garments to Iggys’s.

You have a custom fit garment for your little Iggy. While we have provided you some tips on fitting we take no responsibility if you hurt your Iggy in any manner during the fitting process.

There are two options we have had success with. Fit the garment in the standing position or in the sitting position. We have the most success in the sitting position. As Iggy’s bones are delicate these are only suggestions, you know your Iggy and may have a better way to fit your Iggy.

It is important to note that the garment is made of a stretch fabric and as a result should have enough give for you to fit your Iggy easily.

Option 1: Standing Position

STEP 1: Roll the neck down and fit this over your Iggy’s head first.

STEP 2: Put one front leg in first and then the other. The second leg will be a bit more difficult to fit, but should easily go in. Be gentle and careful.

STEP 3: Pull the rest of the garment towards the back, towards the tail.

STEP 4: Lift one of the rear legs and stretch the garment so the leg slips in. Be vary careful here to not position the leg to hurt your Iggy.

STEP 5: You should now have three legs fitted, two front and one back with one rear leg to go.

STEP 6a: Grab the internal part of the rear leg section on the leg you just fitted and make sure it is up as far as it can go. Once done carefully stretch the other garment leg down and lift your Iggy’s leg to fit in the top of the leg hole. Be gentle and do not force your Iggy’s leg into any unnatural position that may hurt your Iggy.

STEP 6b: Your Iggy should now be snuggly fitted. Now make a few adjustments using your hands to make sure nothing is pulling on your Iggy’s skin. Once done, you are completed.

STEP 7: Place your hand down the neck to find your harness connection ring and push through the lead hole.

STEP 8: You are done.

Having trouble? – If none of this makes sense or you have had no success fitting your Iggy, then the easiest way to fit your Iggy is in the sitting position.

Option 2: Sitting Position

STEP 1: In the standing position, roll the neck down and fit this over your Iggy’s head first.
STEP 2: Put one front leg in first and then the other. The second leg will be a bit more difficult to fit, but should easily go in.
STEP 3: Pull the rest of the garment towards the back, towards the tail.
STEP 4: Guide your Iggy to sit. Once sitting slide the feet in the appropriate leg holes. Be careful not to force your Iggy’s leg into any unnatural position. This should be considerably easier. This is also how you should take the garment off, in the sitting position.
